Still a lot of uncertainty in Gulf Coast one year after oil spill

Dean Blanchard, a 25-year veteran of the seafood business, is the President of Dean Blanchard Seafood Inc. and was hit hard by last year's oil spill.

American Morning spoke with Blanchard in the wake of the oil spill and catches up with Blanchard one year later.

    Kiran Chetry interviewed a supposed addiction specialist this morning. As a practicing physician, I did not agree with all of his
    statements regarding prescription drug addiction. As an expert in his field, he would be expected to understand the importance of making accurate, factual statements about this topic when it relates to
    well known people. Contrary to his cut and paste repetition that
    Michael Jackson died from prescription drug overdose, autopsy
    results state very clearly that the cause of death was Acute Propofol Intoxication. Drugs found in his system at autopsy were put there by
    Murray.

    This morning you had a segment about an oil rig in the gulf. with the new push to do more drilling in the gulf as gas prices continue to rise, i wonder how much of the oil pumped out to the gulf actually finds a home in the US. i think there is an assumption all that oil out there in the gulf flows into the US but guessing that is not true. Do you know? would be interesting to know.

    You people are idiots, they told us a year ago they had the technology to stop the spill, and they were wrong. Just because you can, does not mean that you should, thank you cnn for your blatant one sided "journalism", at least now we know that in your desperation to have ratings that fox does by misreporting and sensationalizing the news, you are quickly becoming one and the same
